In our newest ExCalc – Leasing Calculator version we’ve added a creditworthiness check capability. With the new version you can search the company in a global database and get its credit score without needing to use any other tool. You will get a report und the creditworthiness index directly inside ExCalc. At the moment the module works with Creditreform and lets you control what is used at the data provider. We are in contact with Bisnode and the software is prepared to be integrated with their system. Have a look!
We have acquired a new server lately. A large one. Multi-CPU, multicore, with a lot of-RAM, SSD and lightning fast HDD. It was not cheap. It stays secured in our small server room. What we need it for in the age of SaaS? We should know better because we have in our offer SaaS solutions. Yes, we know better. We know that not everything can be SaaSed. Some services we don’t want to have in the cloud. We want to have them here. We gained our expert knowledge by personally engaging in the IT side of things. Because of that we are able to conduct the Software Product Life Cycle for each and every part of our software. Beginning with silicon and ending at the bits’ level. We have nothing against delegating the more boring IT tasks away, as long as we are able to solve them ourselves – in case of a problem with external provider.
Once again a year has passed and once again Opole Robots Fair is coming along. This year we are once again a gold sponsor of that event. This eyar our tournament management software together with the website will be used. We’ve created the software with the internship students during the summer internship program. We are very happy to be able to help in such events like the Robots Fair. This year during summer we will work with the internship students on another interesting project. In a meanwhile have a look at http://ofr.po.opole.pl.
Believe it or not, there are still many projects for which original development began 20 or 30 or so years ago! It is hard to maintain and extend such software. Jung software developers do not know and don’t want to learn Delphi, Fotran or Clarion. The 3rd party vendors are sometimes not supporting the older platforms. The IDEs and operatin systems changed. It is impossible or economically not viable to migrate from old programming languages and environments. So to extend such software it might be easier to develop the new features in .NET. There are several ways of running .NET code from native code and we are slowly becoming experts in it. We are just starting the third project that combines an old software our customer needs to maintain with the new C#/XAML/WPF/WCF functionality.The procedure ist seemingly simple the an old application written in Delphi or Clarion is seamlessly conntected to the new .NET functionality we write using so called interoperability layer.
We are running our third project that uses this technology. We have a new customer that needed an interoperability layer on top of the new .NET API for CrystalReports. The new CrystalReports vendor (SAP) is no longer maintaining the old API that our customer relays upon. So we build an interoperability layer to provide the .NET API for his software. Having the experience we were able to quickly came up with the solution that is being tested right now.
